VIDEO: Usain Bolt Beaten By Yohan Blake At Jamaican Olympic Trials

On Friday evening in Jamaica, the Jamaicans held their version of Olympic trials for track and field to determine their teams. While everyone expected the "world's fastest man," Usain Bolt, to come away in first place in the 100m, he struggled to get off the line in each of his races and was beaten out by Yohan Blake in the men's 100m finals as you can see in the video below.

Bolt has been slow off the start since his false start in the 2011 World Championships, and it is clearly impacting his races. In the semifinals, Bolt was able to run down his competition, but he couldn't overcome Blake, who finished with a time of 9.75, the fourth fastest time in the world for the men's 100m.
